The dial is signed John Skinner, Exeter. The dial is retained within a boldly moulded brass bezel and mahogany surround. The good quality and substantial movement of a weeks duration has tapered plates and five turned knopped pillars, with anchor escapement.
The movement is stamped on the front plate Thwaites (London)and numbered 4924 which dates the clock to 1812 exactly. Thwaites clocks are numbered between 4821-5010 for this year.
